Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of arrhythmia (abnormal heart
rhythm) causing an irregular heartbeat. According to U.S CDC, AF affected
approximately 2.7 million Americans in 2010. CDC noted that AF patients are at
significantly increased health risks.
According to several studies there is a relationship between periodontal (Gum)
health and AF. Thus, oral infections may contribute to AF by adding to the
body’s inflammatory burden. In one large study, Researchers examined 800,000
patients and discovered that patients in the periodontal disease group were 31
percent more likely to develop AF when compared to the control group. The
authors also noted that those patients who had at least one scheduled dental
appointment a year had a lower risk of atrial fibrillation when compared to
patients who did not seek any dental care.

Dress up as your favorite story book character and show off your costume to the judges and spectators at Samuel Staples, then march to the Library, or come and watch the parade go by. This year’s Grand Marshal is Children’s Librarian Elizabeth Portillo. The Parade starts at Samuel Staples at 12:00 p.m. Parade registration is at 11:30 a.m. Pre-registration forms are available at the Library.
Join us at 1:00 p.m. for the Cow Chip Raffle and Country Fair at the Library, for some “old-fashioned fun at old-fashioned prices.” There will be refreshments for sale, games, and fun for everyone!
To take part in the raffle, purchase one or more of 324 squares on the grid for $20 per square, then watch and wait for the cow to deposit a chip on a square. If the chip lands on your square, you’ll win $500. Tickets are available at the Library, and must be purchased before 2:00 p.m., when the cow enters the enclosure.
